      Description

      We got this email from DropBox today and wondering if anything needs to be changed in Moodle:

      Action Required: Token and Permission Updates

      The Dropbox API now supports OAuth scopes, PKCE, refresh tokens, and short-lived access tokens. We’re asking developers to review their app’s permission settings and ensure their apps support short-lived access tokens. Apps that require background access will need to update to use refresh tokens, which is made easier by using our updated SDKs.

      Starting September 30th, 2021, the Dropbox OAuth flow will no longer return long-lived access tokens. It will instead return short-lived access tokens, and optionally return refresh tokens. Please be sure to review, test, and move to the new permission model before then.

      For detailed instructions, please see:
